Foam System

Firefighting foams are used in fixed and portable fire extinguishing systems. They are used primarily to combat flammable and combustible liquid fuel fires Aqueous foam solutions, created using foam concentrate mixed with water, are expanded with air to create foam. Foam is used to suppress liquid fuel vapors and cool the liquid surface.

Atmospheric Foam Concentrate Tanks

An atmospheric foam concentrate tank is one component of a foam proportioning system. The

AES foam tanks are compatible with all foam concentrate. An atmospheric concentrate tank is

typically used in conjunction with a AES “balanced pressure proportioner”. Storage tanks shall be

designed for storage of foam concentrate at atmospheric pressure and shall be available in vertical

or horizontal version.
